Call For Papers

Intercultural communication and multilingualism have been gaining significant research attention in applied linguistics in the past few decades especially in contexts such as language learning, education, and language policies. However, the study of translation, both texts and oral, is still limited in applied linguistics although translation is essential in multilingual contexts and for intercultural communication. Languages are shaped and reshaped through being used for communication, and translation practices have been significantly contributing to the development of languages. The goal of this Special Issue of Languages is to promote the study of language use found in translation practices from the perspectives of intercultural communication and multilingualism and to add new insights to the nature of languages and language use as a part of applied linguistics. Topics may include, but are not limited to the following:

• Translation as intercultural communication
• Translation and multilingualism
• Translation and translanguaging
• Translation and power imbalance
• Multilingual subtitling
• Language contact and translation
• Translator’s ideologies and language use
• Multimodality in translation for intercultural communication
• The role of translated literature in intercultural communication
• The role of translation in education
• Translation and language development

We welcome original research articles that provide a substantial amount of new information as well as review articles that provide concise and precise updates on the latest progress made in the area of research described above (8000-10000 words).

We request that, prior to submitting a manuscript, interested authors initially submit a proposed title and an abstract of 400-600 words summarizing their intended contribution. Please send it to the guest editor ( and to /Languages/ editorial office ( Abstracts will be reviewed by the guest editor for the purposes of ensuring proper fit within the scope of the special issue.
